The CIIM is the administrative interface for the Archives Hub. The CIIM allows contributors to view the descriptions they have on the Hub, to un-publish and re-publish and to upload new descriptions that are Hub valid EAD.
Email the Archives Hub to obtain a username and password.

Submissions from the EAD Editor
Descriptions submitted to the Hub from the Editor will automatically be uploaded straight into the CIIM. They typically go live within 15 minutes, but can take longer if the system is particularly busy.
- Select collection level descriptions or components. The number of matches is provided.
- Search all text or by title
- Sort by date processed or title
- Switch to image view to see any digital content you have included
- Click on a description to preview it and see any related lower level entries
Please check with the Hub team before using the upload facility, as we need to ensure your processing pipelines are in place in order that the descriptions are correctly processed.
We highly recommend reading the CIIM guide or watching the audio tutorial before using the Data Manager to upload.
